MARCOM's Computer Workstation Safety DVD Program reviews the health and safety issues that can be involved when we are using computers, and provide practical solutions to many of these problems.
A computer doesn’t appear to be very dangerous. In fact it seems pretty harmless when you compare it with the big machines and power tools that some people use in their jobs. But a lot of people have found out the hard way that if they don’t set up and use their computers correctly…they can in fact, hurt them.
Repetitive motion, poor lighting and physical stress can lead to conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, computer vision syndrome and lower back problems. The hazards are real. But there are things that can be done to avoid the pain and injuries that can occur when you’re working with your computer.
The DVD program and booklet include arranging your work area, using neutral positions, reducing eyestrain, stretching and “relaxation” exercises and more.
The DVD program in the kit comes with:
- comprehensive leader's guide
- reproducible scheduling & attendance form
- employee quiz
- training certificate
- training log
- OSHA 29 CFR 1910.900
